All Criminal Defendants, Including Illegal Aliens, Deserve Fair Treatment

By: Wallin & Klarich

Judges must treat all persons who come before them with respect and cannot treat aliens accused of crimes more harshly than others

A recent article reported that a judge was censured for his unfair treatment of illegal aliens who came before him.

It is a fundamental right of all persons who are accused of a crime to be treated fairly, regardless of their race, religion or immigration status. A person who finds himself accused of crime has the right to be represented by a competent criminal defense lawyer at all stages of the proceeding. The fact that the accused happens to be in this country illegally does not impact his right to be protected by our laws when he faces the possibility of jail time.

When a judge treats people differently based upon the color of their skin, or their sex, or their religion then that person has the right to appeal any action taken by that judge in his case. If this happens to you it is important to retain the services of a highly qualified California appeals attorney to help you in your case.
